$ 16.00

Set in the Great Depression, Sibyl Kempson’s Let Us Now Praise Susan Sontag is an irrational musical contemplation of the ethical pitfalls of poetic journalism, inspired by the work of James Agee and Walker Evans as well as Sontag's essay 'On Photography,' the journals of Symbolist painter Odilon Redon, The NEW American Machinists’ Handbook, the ancient Assyrian mythological seals in the JP Morgan Collection, and a couple of Broadway musicals.
